A small axe for outdoor use in forests and open land is suitable for work in the garden. The head is made from blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork. The axe is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel using traditional methods in use since 1697. The steel is stuck several times, increasing its density and thereby the durability of the axe. Has a clear tempered zone within which the axe can be sharpened whilst not detracting from the strength of the edge. The curvy shaft is made from hickory and treated with linseed oil. An edge protector is included with the axe.
